Coinbase is the easiest place to buy and sell cryptocurrency, via a trusted and easy-to-use platform for accessing the broader crypto economy.

We collaborated with San Francisco based design studio, Moniker, to develop the motion system for the new Coinbase identity.

With Moniker's bold and refreshing rebrand, we undertook an extensive exploration phase to realise the core motion principles, before further defining a complete motion system to inform future use of the brand across all on-screen applications. 

We tied it all together in a 60 second, hyper energetic brand reel, demonstrating the capability and flexibility of the new identity system in action. And since then, we've created a wide range of motion collateral, from online tutorials right through to ad campaigns for Times Square NYC and the Winter Olympics in Beijing.
